    Featuring work by Tereza Swanda, Peter Howells, Diane Jacobs, Angela Rose Voulgarelis, Dorota Mytych, Michael Miller, Melissa Morris

    ReachArts hosts Unredacted, a mixed media exhibition featuring 7 artists who, over the last two decades, have studied with the collaborative duo rosenclaire, Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky, artists and educators who run workshops and residencies principally in Italy and South Africa.

    "As a group, we are working with the following themes: gender and economic inequality, violence against women and children, migration as a means of potential political asylum, destructive thoughts that perpetuate social and political division, as well as the collapse of hierarchical cultural structures. 

    Acknowledging the political post-truth world we now live in, as artists and activists, we aim to shine a light on sustained inequities and offer more humane alternatives."

    Saturdays: 11 am- 1 pm Tereza Swanda paints Shells, portraits while sitting with the public. The difference from a portraiture artist is that Swanda doesn't paint the sitter’s portrait, instead each individual chooses an image of a migrant.

    Join us for the photographic exhibition Abstracts: Ocean, Earth and Sky featuring the work of Stephen Levin.

    The images included in this exhibit are from his most recent series of Abstracts: Seashore Abstracts, Ocean Galaxies, The Ground Below & The Sky Above.

    Each series considers that beauty, as well as art, can be found everywhere including places otherwise easily overlooked. 

    Looking closely, one can see the elements of composition and design; the visual components of color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value.

    As a photographer, Stephen attempts to “see the world in new ways” and to encompass diverse subjects and themes utilizing multiple techniques.

    Each image is an invitation for the viewer to also see the world in a new way, to interact, and create their own stories, to find within the image, something they had not seen before.

    Opening Reception: November 8
    Closing Reception: December 7

    10% discount for senior citizens and students every day.
    10% discount for everyone on Veteran's Day and Black Friday.

    10% of proceeds will be donated to Children's Hospital.
